Young Afsan is privileged, called to the distant Capital City to apprentice with Saleed the court astrologer. But when the time comes for Afsan to make his coming-of-age pilgrimage, to gaze upon the Face of God, his world is changed forever- for what he sees will test his faith...and may save his world from disaster!

I really like most of R.J Sawyer's work. This book is a teen lizard 'coming-of-age' story with the unlikely twist of the lizard developing a complete astrophysical model of his solar system from scratch. Confusing? - yes. Unbelievable? - Yes. Thought provoking? - nope.
Really have to admire the narrator's handling of the unpronounceable names and customs of the race of lizard people. Glad I didn't have to read it.
